  • Target taking advantage of GTA IV to push Mother's Day sales

    Brian over at Kotaku found this little ad by Target and I have to admit it’s pretty ingenious, but then again it’s pretty stupid. If I already owned GTA IV, what the hell would I be doing cruising around on Target’s site for? Nice try, Target. Read More

  • CrunchArcade: GTA IV's downloadable music will be portable to iPods, computers

    We’ve known for awhile now that GTA IV, when it hits, will have the ability to program the in-game radio with music purchased online. But now Amazon’s getting in on the action, allowing those who’ve bought in-game songs to transfer them to their iTunes, iPods, etc. What’s really great is the MP3s are DRM-free, meaning switching them to your device and desktops and… Read More

  • CrunchArcade: EA relentlessly pursuing Take-Two, amends offer

    EA is absolutely going apesh*t over Take-Two. In retaliation over Take-Two’s public rejection of EA, the software giant from Redwood Shores is fighting back. This whole scenario reminds me of your typical boy meets girl, boy comes on too strong, girl loses interest, boy plays with himself scenario. When boy, EA in this case, just needs to chill and act like a dick to girl, Take-Two, to… Read More

  • CrunchArcade: Last GTA IV trailer So here’s the last trailer for Rockstar Game’s GTA IV. Let’s hope they work out all the bugs because they need to get this into production by the 10th to meet the launch date. Read More

  • CrunchArcade: Take-Two says EA offer is inadequate

    Flickr’d Oh burn, EA. Take-Two’s board of directors have advised shareholders that they’re worth way more than the $26/share EA is willing to pony up. The press release is mostly a bunch of legal jargon, but it reveals the obvious that others are willing to compete with EA. There could also be a merger between Take-Two and EA or a third party. A few reasons why the BoD is… Read More

  • Grand Theft Auto IV Special Edition makes me wet my pants

    [photopress:gta4_x360_pre_500.jpg,full,pp_image] This is probably the coolest Special Edition package for any game I’ve ever seen. Way better than any of the Halo 3 packages. I’m pretty sure this is going to sell out so act quick. The SE includes an art book, soundtrack, Rockstar keychain with a safety deposit box and a Rockstar duffel bag. Amazon even has an exclusive for you… Read More

  • Grand Theft Auto IV coming this April

    There are a slew of updates to game play such as having no control over your inebriated body or something more useful like autosave after each mission. It gets a tiny bit dramatic when you’re in sniper mode. You won’t be winning any Oscars or anything, but the whole thing turns into a short film. Throwing grenades sound pretty cool because you get to see your victim disintegrate. Read More

  • Comparison video of Manhunt 2 kill moves You know that if the controversial Manhunt 2 stayed in its original form, it’d be a damn fun game. But because some people in a church somewhere got their panties in a bundle over… Read More

  • Win a Wii covered in blood

    Well, fake blood at least. Looks like Rockstar Games, the folks behind the popular Grand Theft Auto series, are giving away a 50-inch plasma TV and a Nintendo Wii covered in “blood”. Don’t worry though, it’s just a couple of stickers on the system and the Wiimote, so you won’t be getting the HIVRageMonkeyVirus anytime soon. If you win, you’ll also get a copy… Read More

  • Sony PS3 Goes Rockstar

    I believe I’m on the verge of taking back every bad thing I said about the PS3 with news that Sony has signed an exclusive deal with Rockstar Games for the ‘next great franchise’. This is very exciting news, but let’s face facts for a moment. Any game that is developed for the PS3 from the ground up is going to be amazing. It will utilize all the amazing capabilities… Read More

    NOT! But it’s always fun to see the inner-workings of all your favorite companies. Jeff, who used to work for Rockstar Games, recently posted a gigantic manifesto on his time spent working for the company. It’s a great read full of interesting tidbits, though some of the stuff is predictable. Here’s a snarky excerpt: Working there also really did buy the rock star treatment… Read More
